I’m super excited to announce the Canon FL 55mm F1.2 Giveaway! It’s the most expensive and the fastest lens that I’ve given away, so definitely something a bit special, made even better by the custom EDMIKA mount, designed specially for this particular lens. It usually retails for $75 directly from www.edmika.com, but EDMIKA very kindly donated one for this giveaway, making it this lens compatible with pretty much any camera out there! The mount is currently uninstalled, so winner will decide if they want to keep this lens with its original mount or covert it to EF (conversation is reversible).
Back to the lens, If you don’t know much about it, make sure to check out my in-depth review here.
A quick word on a condition of the lens. It’s obviously a vintage lens, so there are some minor signs of age, but as you can see, overall it’s in amazing condition for a lens that is almost 50 years old!
Rules, Terms & Condition for the Giveaway:
To manage the whole giveaway I’m using a rafflecopter.com to help me track all the entries and pick a winner.
Entering is very simple, all you need to do is complete 1 of 10 steps below. To qualify for 1 entry you only need to complete 1 step, but completing more steps will give you more entries, hence give you higher chance of winning. Please note, that the winner will NOT be chosen by the amount of entries. The extra completed steps will simply give you higher chance of being picked, so feel free to complete as many or as few as you like, just make sure that you do it through rafflecopter widget below. Any entries made in any other way will not be entered into competition, only the ones processed through rafflecopter.
The giveaway is open to everyone. I will ship anywhere in the world for free, so don’t let your location stop you from entering; previous winners included people from US, UK, Netherlands, Germany, Canada, Italy, Algeria and other countries! I will try to post this lens by a recorded postal service, which will require a signature on delivery (depending on location of the winner), but in an unfortunate event of the lens going missing in transit, I will not be held responsible and no alternative prize will be offered. Fortunately this has never happened and hopefully never will.
Important: The Winner must contact me via Website/Facebook/Twitter/Youtube/Vimeo/Email within 2 weeks of the Winner Announcement Video. If I’m not contacted within 2 weeks, I will have to pick a new winner. The reason for doing this is due to some people entering just for the sake of it, not really caring about the prize and who might not even use it once if they win. I spend my own money to fund these giveaways (postage sometimes costs as much as the lens itself) and I want the lenses I give away to end up with someone who will actually use them and hopefully benefit from having them as part of their kit. Good luck to everyone entering!
As you may know, I don’t have any sponsors and except for occasional collaborations, all my giveaways are self funded! I giveaway what I can and as often as I can, but giveaways like this are very costly, especially because I volunteer to send lenses to anyone, anywhere in the world, which can cost quite a bit.
To help me fund future lens giveaways, as well as other content I create for VintageLensesForVideo, I started a PATREON page. f you enjoy VLFV, please spare a few minutes to check out my page to see what it’s all about and how you can make a difference! I came up with some rewards for people who decide to support VLFV in such direct way, so please have a look at my page to see if it could add value to you as well!
If you can’t support VLFV on Patreon, please bookmark and/or use this link if you want to buy anything else on eBay or this link if you shop on eBay.co.uk. You will not be spending a penny more using these links, but still helping VLFV because eBay will pay out a small percentage from any purchase or successful bid, which in turn will support new content on www.vintagelensesforvideo.com
